Last year saw the launch of the Colours of the Nile International Film Festival, with a focus on Senegalese cinema and a screening of Tey by Alain Gomis among the highlights. Set up by Blue Nile Film and Television Academy, the festival aims to promote African cinema and inspire talent, and the second edition this March has as its theme Lenses on African Renaissance. This year South African films will be highlighted. With a thriving industry, South Africa is seen by the event’s organisers as a good example for other African nations to follow. Along with the competition, there are screenings and workshops.
